JAKES E. CHAISE IS, - - - Editor.
SATURDAY, - - - JUNE 29, 1872.
Eves Cleveland Is to have a Fourtb-of-J
illy celebration and the anthorttie will
Hftually permit the firing of crackers and
torpedoes on the streets.
Vr.HiLy, what is fame? TheX. Y.
Obserrer, in crediting an article to the
Akron Beaton Bays that that paper is
published in a flourishing town in Perm
ylvani;i. And this despite the Associa
ted Press and the Valley Railroad.
The Gulden Aye says that the Indian
warriors, who have been visiting New
York did not produce as startling effects
there as they hare been accustomed to do
on the frontier. In the city they only
made the people's hair to stand on end,

The Cleveland Leader lias taken to
publishing political caricatures. In its
i Jrtne of the 2.'th inrt., is one which rep
resent General Grant as skinning a re
markably ill-drawn snake whose head
U that of Horace Greeley. ' It is some
what difficult s to decide which is the
most execrable the wit ( ?) that devised
the design, the taste that permitted its
publication or the labor of the draughts
man and engraver.
The success which attended the fin
riuuati Industrial Exhibition last year
hit led the managers to put forth tin-
usual inducements for the one to be held
from the 4th of September next to the
5th of October. The premium list has
beu largely extended and nearly 700
medals are to be awarded for the first
degree of excellance. The tine building
gives over even acres of exhibiting space
and last' year furnished, in .addition
ample accommodation to the multitude?
of sight-seers who visited tiiere.
Some time since we called attention to
the lack of courtesy which is too often
manifested by metropolitan journals in
tileir treatment of rural cotemporaries
and to the vanity and arrogance which
leads them to claim that, all ideas of im
portance ordinarily originate with them
selves. . Upon this subject the Bridge-
port Conn. Standard, in a recent num
ber, has a sensible editorial. It very
truly says that it has hitherto been
common for the Democrats to charge thai
all the country Republican papers ob
tained their ideas from the Xew York
Tribune; but now that the Tribune has
ceased to be a Republican paper and is
discarded by country Republican news
papers, thes persons have probably
noticed that the latter papers get along
just as well as before, from whence they
can infer that their former notions were
only imaginary, and that the country
Republican palters stand on their own
bottom, not- upon the Tribune or any
other metropolitan journal.
Speaking of the session of Congress
just ended, we said in a recent article
that much time had been wasted by
members who failed to see that their
mission was other than to act the part of
blatent demagogues. In I commenting
upon this the Akron Beacon says:
It the Journal will take the trouble to
subtract the time occupied in political
speech-making by a half-dozen Liberal
leaders from theentlre time of the session.
the small remainder will satisfy its rend.
ers, if not the editor, as to the names of the
"iiiaieui ana persistent demagogues."
To thus reduce the question to the
basis of a mathematical problem is cer
tainly an original idea, but after all we
imagine' that any attempt to saddle the
blame upon either of the political parties
would , be but a good illustration of the
old "pot and kettle" absurdity. An im
partial examination of the records of the
last Congress can hardly fail to convince
anyone that party speech-making was by
no means confined to either political di
vision. The disease was wide spread and
affected all alike. ' Possibly thctauit is
one inherent In our form of Government
but it certainly was general in its opera
tion, n. Two i. wrongs can never make a
right and that Stunner, Trumbull and
Schnrtz occupied time which ought to
have been devoted to other objects is no
justification for a similar course on the
pare of Colliding, Xye and the other so-
called Administration Senators. Besides,

fences and determined opposition to de

worse . than to devote one's, energies to
making the cha'rges or to giving expres
sion ,;to the people's will that reform
shall be inaugurated. "The one is simply
a. waste , of time, but the other leads the
public to believe that the truth is unable
to bear the light. ' 1
in Fun r la Earnest!
Undoubtedly one's views may change
with the. .lapse of time and under the
influences! of -new circumstances, but
whenever such may be the case a com
parison of the past with the present is
always somewhat ludicrous. .To main
tain one's opinion in spiteof argument or
fact is by no means a sign of consistency
and a newspaper writer, being forced to
keep pace with the march of Progress, is
probably led to change his views ofteuer
than the average man. But for that very-
reason a., discussion of utterances, when
extending over any length of Unie,al way s
is attended with more or less of humor
and apparent inconsistency.. On this
account the present political campaign
promises to be a peculiar one for it may
well be doubted whether any man can
be found who has better kept up with
advanced ideas than Mr. Greeley and
consequently been more consistently In
consistent, In 1868 Mr, Greeley deliver
ed a lecture at Montreal and received
distinguished honors at the hands of the
Canadians. , In the course of a speech
made at a banquet tendered him by the
city authorities Mr. Greeley said:
"Mr. Webster was not only a gentle
man, but , he had the elements of moral
greatness, and he had faults as well. He
failed only in one respect, and in this
respect I differ with him lie wanted to

It is well understood and certain that

On Saturday last a middle aged man
presenting a good business appearance
giving the name of Joseph Phelps, pre
sented himself at the First National
Bank in Cincinnati with a letter of rec
ommendation purporting to come from
Evans, Wbartoii & Co., of Xew York.
He represented that he was here to make
. . 1 j ; i . .. I .
svmc iJiveauiieuus, mm uesireu w mime
some deposits upon which he could
draw interest. Mr. Stanwood, cashier.
replied that they could pay no interest
on his deposits. The stranger at the
close of the interview presented a check
on the Fulton National Bank of Xew
York for eight thousand dollars, to
which was signed the name ot Evans.
Wharton. & Co., of Xew York, and
which bore a printed certificate, appar
ently from the bank. Upon this he de
sired to draw a tew hundred dollars,
which the cashier declined to advance,
whereupon the man departed, and has
not since been beard from. The Xew
York firm was at once informed of what
had occurred, and replied that they knew
nothing ot the check, letter or man.
The man's deportment and appearance
were well calculated to deceive, and
since he will probably make similar at
tempts elsewhere bankers should be on
their guard. The man who made a
fruitless enort last wees m Covington is
now supposed to be the same person.
Col. Burr, warden of the Ohio peni
tentiary, and other otlicials of that in
stitution, have concluded their mvesti
gation into the cause of the recent
horrible boiler explosion in one of

ill the prison walls. After taking the
testimony ot a number ot prisoners and
several experienced engineers, the offi
cers state without hesitation that the
explosion was caused from want of water
in the boilers. They immediately or
dered that James H, Wilson, who had
supervision of the brush factory, and
who was responsible more than any one
else for the neglect, be prohibited in
future from being in the employ of con
tractors at the penitentiary. "lie will
probably go unpunished, although the
evidence proves him to have been so
neglectful before, at different times, that
it is marvelous the explosion had not
occurred much sooner. A visit to the
ruins shows that the force of the explo
sion was upward and outward to the
west. Only a portion of the sjde waJl
on the east remains intact. Fragments
of the boiler and engine were hurled in
all directions with terrible force, TJic
boiler connected with Huff & Many

are unable, through lack of room to give
anything more than results. ' The usual
organization was affected, ' and the

accepted the nominees of the Cincin-

Puerto Cabello, Venzuela, the latter part
ofMay and very likely would be unable
to receive i the necessary reports there
and be obliged to leave for Martinique.
Two Spanish war vessels were in port.
The officers were enraged at the refusal
Of the Venzuelan government to deliver
the Virginlus up to them, and threatened
to cut her out,--whereupon the Venzu
elans turned the guns of their fort upon
the ; Spaniards and the latter quieted
down. The Virginlus is also out of coal.
The situation in regard to the labor
strike remains 1 practically unchanged.
AH the indications, however, point to an
early ' termination of: the movement.
Compromise is now a ranch mora -frequent
word In the mouths of strikers
than the original war cry of "No sur
render,'' ,: The temper of the men is
much better than last week, and any re
course to violent or illegal measures to
further their aims would appear to have
been abandoned, The threatened demon
stration of piano makers at Stein way's
factory, which was announced to come
oft', did not take place. The metal mak
ers still Continue their strike.- James
Lawler, sewing -machine "maker, has
been arrested for interfering with men
Of his trade. The superintendent of the
factory attempted to drive Lawler off,
but was struck by him, and a good deal
of excitemeut-was the -result. -He-was
held in f 1,000 bail to answer. : David
Heron, another striker, was held to bail
to keep the peace for asking a fellow
workman to knock off work. ' i -;
The convention called by Jndge Stallo
at the Fifth Avenue Hotel, met. No re
verters were admitted. 1 It has been
learned, however, that ex-Governor Cox
made speech endeavoring to harmonize
n Greeley, Edward Atkinson urged in
speech the nomination of Charles Fran
cis Adams as a means to unite the Re
formers against Grant, Among those
present were the following srontlemen ;
Colonel Grosvenor and T. T, Gault o
Jlissoun, CW Dantaer, Park Godwin
and W, C, Bryant. The question was
ueoateu, "snail we nominate a ticket?"
Alter a long discussion, it was decided
in the affirmative, when Mr. Cox pub-
neiy wuuurew irom tne deliberations.
The platform denounces Greeley and the
vim-muau convention, anuplodgc9 Free
Traders to support their own policy un

The Rrooklyn committee of fifty have
issued a report on the administration of
public school affairs. In the course of
ine investigation, tney lound the start
ling fact that the average annual ex
penditures lor school house purposes
during the three years preceding 1867
were only 61 ,000; the disbursements
for 1869 and the three succeeding years
averaged 229,000 a year, an increase of
nearly three hundred per cent, within
three and a half years, while during the
same three and a half years the average
daily number of schohirs only increased
forty-three percent.

The Jubilee is rising with the mer
cury. Ihe management have reduced
tlie'price of general admission from live
to three dollars, and the average man has
put in an apjearance. Ihe lonesome
galleries are nearly filled the parquette
is packed and Gilmore is happy. Thurs
day the Anvil Chorus leaped to its old
place in popular lavor, and received an
old and tumultaneous eurore, indicating
a dincrent audience and a dinerent
The foreign hands have been the great
feature of Jubilee. The performance of
the r-nglish Grenadier liuards and the
reception it received will be one of the
memorable moments in the- lives of all
who were present on Tuesday. Such an
outburst aud overflowing of enthusiasm
has never been seen in this country be
fore. The French band produced a sen
sation scarcely ; surpassed by that -of
Tuesday. The 'German Kaiser baud
brought, the great multitude to its feet
again" ami again, amid a -storm of ap
plause. Aiii" comparison . between the
merits, of these bands would lie useless.
Many are differently organized. In the
English band the reeds predominate, in
t lie German and French the brasses.
They are the three best bands in the
world, and have carried the Jubilee by
storm. , The presence of Strauss is an
other of Mr. Giliuore's happy achieve
ments. The magnetic little German can
scarcely get away from the , audience.
Again and again he returned to the
stand, and is welcomed w ith an ovation,
upon every re-appeaeance. -
Madame Leuther is the. wonder of the
Jubilee. No artiste since the days of
Jenny Land lias created such asenstiou
in Boston. She soars among the high
notes, wiihout apparent effort, aud her
magnificent voice rings out sweet and
clear in the highest lights.. ,:
"The Marseillaise" was the most sub
lime performance vet given. The cry
of all the oppressed, and the rising of
then, desperate desire, are expressed
in every tone of Rouget de LTslc's
master-piece. The pealing of the can
non, ...... j
li-uu luutfed ami thunder throated," , i
the bellowing organ.the crash of drums
and brasses, the heavy undertone of the
great chorus, stirred the deeps of feel
ing, it was a song and an acconipani
nient to make men rise and demand to
be led against whatever was wrong to
be led to the battle of freedom, to the
front in the struggle for liberty. " The
spirit' of all revolutions seems to brood
over the audience during that magnifi
cent passage. While the violins com-
panicd and wailed" forth their despair,
ami the basso groaned and moaned
in spirit, and -with every down stroke of
Mr. Gilmore's haton came the crash of
the cannon with as much precision as
the resiionse ot a piano kev. '
About two hundred and fifty shots are
tired every day. At theclose ofthecon-
cert "Hamburg" was sung by the chorus
and audiencee with the cannon accom
paniment, with magnificent effect: -The
organ has been badly handled. In
one of the soft passages in "God Save the
Queen" it bellowed "like a bull of Bas-
han, and threw the chorus into such con
fusion that Mr. Gillniore gave it up, and
extricated himself with a master stroke
of delicate tact, by leading Mr. Dan
Godfrey to- the stand, who swung his
great band on upon the "Star-spangled
Banner " amid the roar of the multitude.
Friday's concert was fully up to the
standard of the preceding days. Strauss
again produced his Blue Danube Mad
ame Leutner again touched high O, and
the English GrenadierGuard created an
other furore. "God Save the Queen,"
etc., was given again, amid great enthu
siasm. - - ' '" "' " '
The financial success of the Jubilee is
assured. Next week a variety of con
certs will be given, and prices ot admis
sion will be reduced so as to touch the
classes upon which all great, popular
demonstrations swing.
